President Andreas, In his annual address, pleaded with the coaches
to abandon the
"stalling game" and make basketball a "virile,
rugged game of action." He pointed out that Ice hockey Is becoming
Increasingly popular In the East and North and might supplant basketball as the leading winter sport unless steps arc taken to put more action
In the game.
During the debating at the convention the East accused the West of
sponsoring rough play. The West replied that the East had originated
the "block." This makes a good basketball fan laugh. To think that
Eastern teams playing the long pass, girl fashion sytle of basketball,
would make such an attack. The East should start playing basketball the
way that the men out West play It.
It was suggested, among other things, that the rules committee get
out a moving picture of a model basketball game to bo shown to coaches,
officials and players In every section. Another scheme called for the
manufacturers of sporting goods to send a crack set of officials thrugh-othe land to lecture and demonstrate the proper method of calling a
"As matters liow stand," said Coach Keogan of Notre Dame, "It is
necessary for a coach to teach his team a different style of game for
every section In which he plays. That Is expecting a little too much."
The rules committee also was petitioned to do something toward defining the legitimate "block," such as placing diagrams In the next rule
book to show what constitutes a legal play of this kind. The assembled
mentors were almost unanimous In condemning the "block," yet a vote,
demanded by Dr. F. C. Allen of the University of Kansas, disclosed that
about 98 per cent of those present have been teaching their players to
use It, in "self defense," they said.
The most radical proposal for the improvement of the game was
sponsoring by Oswald Tower, editor of Basketball Guide. He suggested
that the number of free throws be reduced by permitting them only
when a player is fouled when actually in possession of the ball. In all
other cases, he said, the offended team would be given possession where
the offense occurred and a foul charged to the offending player.
Tower's suggestion received active support from Nat Holman, famous
professional star, now coach of College of City of New York. Holman
said the rule had proved a boon to the professional game. The association's research committee was asked to look into the proposal and report
at the next meeting.
The researchers likewise were asked to consider Dr. Allen's proposal that the basket be boosted to twelve feet, two feet higher than
the present standard. The Kansas member declared he had found the
higher hoop a great improvement. While the percentage of field goals
is Just as high, he said, the present advantage of the tall player is reduced.
Other suggested rule changes were dealt with summarily by the
coaches. They voted not to change the center jump, not to establish
a "center zone,," not to penalize teams reporting late, to permit the Jumping center to keep both' arms free and not to cut the time-oallowance
from two minutes to one.
A proposed rule that a dribbler be allowed only one bounce was rejected unanimously, and no action was taken toward imprvlng the
present method of handling
balls. It was decided that the
onus for "stlallng" will continue to rest on the defensive side, whether
it is ahead or behind in the scoring.
